First off let me say I find your answers to be very informative.
My first question is: Will cannibus affect my hair transplant I had on Feb 08/06? I don’t smoke cigarettes but cannibus helps me deal with my occasional back pain.
Secondly when can I resume my normal jogging of a couple miles in the morning? As well as doing chin ups and push ups? I have been told exercise of these sorts will only expand the the donor scar.
Thank you and i appreciate your advice.
Medically speaking, smoking cigarettes (even the cannabis / marijuana kind) promotes poor wound healing by decreasing blood circulation. It may have an impact on your hair transplant, however, I do not know how much of an impact it will have.
Exercises such as sit-ups that may have a potential to stretch the back of your scalp will also have an impact on your donor scar. Running 1 week after surgery is not a problem. Although you can probably resume most of your regular activity after one or two weeks post surgery, the scar takes about 6 months to a year to completely set and in the first 3-6 weeks, the wound structural elements that make for good solid healing change and build. I generally tell my patients not to do the type of exercises that stress the neck muscles like body press or sit-ups for up to 6 weeks. A few of my patients even ran marathons a few weeks after surgery without any negative effects.
